Current Employee - Sales Representative in Redwood City, CA
Current Employee - Sales Representative in Redwood City, CA

I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Huge presence in the market, recognizable brand, established relationships with most CIOs. Very strong commitment to R&D.

Cons

Sales is viewed as a necessary evil. There is tremendous channel conflict due to 10+ prime salespeople all competing for time and attention with the same CIO. If you are in sales, don't expect to be paid on time. The compensation issues at Oracle in terms of accuracy and timeliness are the worst that I have seen in my very long tenure within this industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix the root cause(s) of the turnover problem.

    Current Employee - Senior Principal Product Manager in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Salary, Great benefits, great people and opportunities. While people speak about leading corporate innovators. This is one of the truly great companies where you have the ability to working on technologies that matter. From:
    -internet of thing
    -to java
    -cloud
    -hardware engineering
    -every other ERP,CRM, or other software application in between
    There is not another company on the planet that provides All of those opportunities.

    Cons

    As with a lot of large companies work life balance, and feeling the startup culture are missing. Another thing that is missing is a culture of promoting good feelings (not in the sense of 'hippy happy feelings') but in the sense that the company cares that they are a very good world citizen. Individually, people are that way but as a corporation there is not a collective sense of caring

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Market Better to present the company as the excellent world citizens the individuals are and allow for more bottom up innovation
